Hi Riccardo,

I realize that I kept this thread about Cynthiune, but the title were about 'HelpViewer' and this could be confusing for people who might read the list to search help about this. So I close this thread, because I was finally able to build HelpViewer 0.3 with clang 7 today. ;-)

P.S. : I will go on about Cynthiune with the appropriate previous thread : "Building Cynthiune 0.9.5 : linker error (ld.gold)"

Hi Patrick,

thanks for your interest in GAP application, first thing.
I am revived my Raspberry PI 1 to "jessie" (still unsure if I can update it further, but i had to reinstall, the past attempt to update it bricked it). Then I also have RPI3 and RPI4 to test with GNUstep. You just gave me the impulse to buy another one and keep it as light computer at my parents! Seems to work fine, but e.g. I noticed that for some reason GNUMail is not 100% reliable like on x86, needs to be tested further.

So maybe that particular app which is not useful for everyone (I am not a member of salesforce.com)
should not be a part of the 'gap' ?

Why shouldn't it? GAP contains many apps, you are not forced an "install everything" approach.
Also, a beginner should be best served by packages - if available.

I think a good approach for the beginners should allow a simple make at the root of the gap tree to discover
the basic apps.
But If some app like Databasin is blocking the whole making process, this root GNUmakefile in the top of the gap tree becomes useless, and somebody guessing how to make the apps might find by hand what bundle to make first,
and son on.
Also, like Patryck dit it for the GNUstep core project, it would be very useful to supply a script to get first all the relative dependencies.

You are not forced to build & install everything. Personally I don't use those top-level makefiles either, I install and upgrade the specific apps.

Have seen that... I don't know, all this linker stuff is a mess. I did try
with gcc and its runtime and it worked some weeks ago. So many variants,
Well, I wanted to use clang because many advices at the list said it would be better to learn Objectice-C and create new apps with that modern compiler. But I feel that with my RPI 32 bit, and the tests you did, I should revert to the 'old' GCC and make it all again,

you really should be able to use both and both should work in my opinion and then decide your won taste what to use. If only Cythiune is giving you erros, maybe somebody has a hint on how to fix linking!

(do you have alsa, libasound and it's dev libraries installed? otherwise try
some other backend
yes. I did install those ALSA dependencies.


if somebody can reproduce... I never compiled cynthiune on raspberry, since I don't have sound attached to it, but I could try.
